Communication Arts: Senior Year
Senior Teaching Team
Senior English Course Options
Welcome to Senior Year! Having completed the three-year scope and sequence for skill building and refinement in the study of English, now is the time to explore within the communication arts!
Four years of English instruction are required of all students to graduate from Stevenson. In the senior year, full-year and semester-long courses are available, providing seniors the opportunity to prepare for the AP Literature and Composition exam, to study World Masterpieces or Literary Genres, to focus on Literary Analysis, or to pursue in-depth practice in Creative Writing, Public Speaking, Film/Media or Political Thought. Radio Broadcasting affords students the chance to produce and air programming on our own WAES radio station. Additionally, our award-winning Journalism program provides motivated students the opportunity to experience the world of student newspaper and yearbook production.
These and other avenues for exploration are outlined in the Stevenson Coursebook
. Working closely with your academic counselor to prepare for life after Stevenson will help clarify your goals in the study of English and how best to support them in your senior year.
Our congratulations and best wishes for an exciting and rewarding Senior Year!
